Pole Fitness ClassesPole Fitness classes are 80 minutes in length and may be purchased through enrollment in one of our Membership Clubs or by purchasing a Drop-In Package.

Tier 1: Foundations Level

Duration: Students will remain at the Foundations Level for a total of 8 weeks (80 minutes per class).

Pole Foundations will serve as your introductory session into the amazing world of pole fitness. This class is perfect for those who are new to pole fitness and want to see what it’s all about. The class will be filled with women just like you! With a focus on fundamentals, our Foundations Class will cover basic pole holds, body positioning, beginner floor and wall elements, foundation level pole spins, and elegant accents.

Each class will begin with a warm-up designed to get your heart rate up and improve your flexibility, as well as introduce exercises designed to help build the strength you will need for future levels. After 8 consecutive weeks in this class, you will graduate from Foundations feeling confident in pole fitness basics, experiencing a bond with your fellow classmates that will leave you excited to enter our Beginner Level class. No prior fitness, dance or aerial experience is required as we will start from the ground up!

Prerequisites: None.


Tier 2: Beginner Level

Duration: Students will remain at the Beginner Level for a total of 8 weeks (80 minutes per class).

Our Tier 2: Beginner Level will build upon the curriculum introduced during the Foundations Level class.

You will also be introduced to spin combinations, allowing you to string multiple tricks together! Flow and fluidity will continue to be a focus in this level with emphasis on the dance element of pole fitness. Although we provide instruction on proper technique and form, we will encourage you to find your own unique style as you experiment with movement both on and off the pole.

We will focus on basic inversions, inverted crucifix and begin to weave in the Chopper. You will also be exposed to fun new spins including the Hook and Roll, Reverse Grab and Rockstar Spin.
